First-Year Writing, Part I

Excerpted Course Description

This course is designed to give you the opportunity to engage with multiple modes of writing in order to prepare you to encounter a variety of writing situations in your college career, profession, and personal life. 

Part of this experience will be getting feedback on your work and then revising it based on what that feedback teaches you about your writing. A major theme of the class, then, will be revision, which literally means “seeing again.” We will spend a lot of time this semester looking at both our own work and the works of others from multiple perspectives in order to revise and broaden our thinking about writing itself.
